Microtecna Engineering Via Roncaglia, 5 CH-6883 Novazzano

PLASTICS

Integrated production and energy monitoring system tailored to optimize consumptions and reduce product-related costs.

This solution gathers large amounts of data from third-party machines and PLCs and automatically correlates them in order to calculate KPIs that provide critical informations for optimizing production recipes in real-time and perform condition monitoring on single machines.

A.P.E. Platform

Keywords: PRODUCTION, QUALITY, CONDITION MONITORING, PDA, PROCESS CONTROL, ENERGY

Industrial IT Platform capable to acquire customizable sets of production data directly from machines’ PLC and automatically relate them inside a unique hi-performance database.

This solution can be fully customized by the customer itself and can record any kind of event (such as alarms) or process data and correlate them to a unique identification keys in order to fully describe a product-instance history and guarantee its traceability.

Authorized operators can access and analyse these data by using local HMIs or a secure web-based interface.

3D Profiling & Image Processing Applications

Keywords: PROFILING, PROCESS OPTIMIZATION, QUALITY

A complete hardware/software solution tailored to manage and control different types of climatic test rooms with a single software framework.
Based on multiple technological layers (PLC/SAFE-PLC/IPC), this system manages multiple automation devices and sensors to guarantee the maximum test performances and quality. 
The operators interact with the system using multiple GUIs. The system stores all the process-data on an internal scalable database. The solution is integrated with an internal PDA module (developed by Microtecna) to guarantee full traceability of the test process and perform condition monitoring on each machine. The solution can be integrated with external MES systems.

Using the powerful Microtecna’s MLP Platform, we created compact automated guided vehicles able to transport production materials on proper (and customizable) rollers. These AGVs have omni-directional capabilities and can operate safely with people around it. Our Natural Navigation System allows simple plant deployments with minimum impact on the industrial envoronment where it will be used. The system is controlled by a single Control Station that automatically manages process flows, missions, traffic issues and ERP integration. The plant is also integrated with a built-in roller control system that manages the production lines’ rollers using PLCs and Inverters provided by Microtecna. The system can be integrated with external MESs and ERPs.

Industrial AGVs with Rollers

Keywords: LOGISTICS, AGV, TRACEABILITY, PROCESS CONTROL, TRAFFIC CONTROL , ERP/MES INTEGRATION, PDA

Complete PC/PLC solution that manages label creation process using laser-marking technologies.
Once the labels are programmed and loaded from the MES (tailored by Microtecna), an hybrid system (PLC/IPC) controls an external laser and all related automation to create custom labels on aluminium plates. The sustem archives all the data on an internal database. Once each operation is finished all the data are synchronized with MES to guarantee fully traceability of the labeling process.

Labeling Machine Control and Management System

Keywords: LABELING, TRACEABILITY, PROCESS CONTROL, MES INTEGRATION

Hybrid Platform (Web/Mobile) created to manage maintenance operations inside industrial environments.The system performs activities’ planning and execution management, tracks operators’ work and helps maintenance costs classification. It can be integrated with external ERP/MES. It is also able to perform condition monitoring activities. Operators can use both a Web application or Mobile devices (or smartphones) to interact with the platform with minimum effort.

M.O.P.A. (Maintenance Operations & Planning Application)

Keywords: MES INTEGRATION, PDA, CONDITION MONITORING, TRACEABILITY

Using our expertise in AGVs, we have been able to completely upgrade the automation and IT technologies used in existing AGV-based solutions for beam transport. 
Normally these AGVs are based on custom electornics and it’s difficult to find replacement parts on the market. We removed all of these parts and retrofitted all the electronics and motion control technologies with industrial-grade ones. At the same time we created a custom Control Station that automatically manages process flows, missions, and ERP integration. The system has been integrated with an external ERP for process data synchronizations.
